Taupo Gardens…8It almost seemed like it was raining blossom…

in some part of this relatively small garden.

 

 

A close up of the pink camellia.

I did not notice the photo bomber

until I cropped to accentuate the dew,

which is not clearly visible on WP.

Taupo Gardens…7I think this is another rhododendron,

however, it appears to have a different leaf.

It was difficult getting close to these blooms.

 

 

Was so busy looking at the artwork, that…

nearly did not notice the Camellias.

Taupo Gardens…6I may have posted a cropped version

of this photo previously.

Just wish we could grow rhododendrons

likes this in our garden.

I am fairly certain the nest two images…

…are both camellias.

Attractive as this is I do not know its name.

Blacks and Whites today.

I probably have no taste in art at all but l like this

Spiderweb in Canola Crop image…

particularly the BW version.

Too busy?  Or about right?

Another I like.

Camellia

 

 

There must be another name for

Red Hot Poker,

but it’s too hot to search.

This looks so refreshing.

This Camellia  is one of the last living links we have to the  farm.

I think we purchased it in the mid to late 1990s.

Nope!

MGW tells me it was one of the first things we bought.

So maybe late 1980s.

Ah!  Yes!

I remember it well!

We read that Camellias like some shade and promptly

planted it under the shade of a weeping willow we inherited.

During its time under the weeping willow

it produced one or two flowers each year.

 

Fast forward to September 2005 and it was time to move.

Yes, Camellia was coming also.

I dug it up and placed it with some care into a

ten litre (half 20) plastic drench drum.

For those wondering, drench is livestock medicine.

Two hundred kilometres in a drench drum on the trailer

and into a very exposed, at the time, garden bed.

September 29, 2005 was moving day so if it can last

a few more weeks it will, along with us celebrate

12 years in its new colder, wetter,

drier and hotter environment.

It just seems to thrive like no other camellia

we have purchased since our move.
